Accreditation

All USD 383 schools were accredited for the 2015-2016 school year.  In preparing for a new K-12 accreditation model, the Kansas Education Systems Accreditation was approved by the Kansas State Board of Education in June of 2016. KESA will officially begin with the 2017-2018 year.

The 2016-2017 year will serve as “Zero Year,” a year of transition, communication and professional learning about the new model.  The new model employs a systems approach to school improvement, accrediting systemsinstead of schools. It requires systems (USDs and accredited private schools) to engage in a transparent, data-based process of system-wide needs assessment, goal setting, implementation, and reflection.
